5 Better Ways to Spend Your Time and Money on Black Friday

Wedding dresses

There are a ton of Christmas and New Year's proposals and nuptials and a whole lot of lead-up to amateur hour proposals on Valentine's Day, but you know what you won't see a lot of from New Year's Day to, oh, May? Weddings.

January, February and March are the absolute slowest months for weddings in the U.S., according to the folks at TheKnot. While couples will concede to the cold to get some Christmas trees and garland into their photo album, they're far less likely to do so when all the lights and decorations have been packed away and half the country looks like Siberia.

Frugal brides have already booked dates during these months for discounts on venues, catering and photography, but demand for wedding dresses in particular bottoms out this time of year. Boutiques are filled with dresses for after Christmas, when all those holiday proposals turn into planning, but those same boutiques are dead before then. You'll have room to negotiate and, with everyone else holiday shopping, you'll have the racks and fitting room nearly all to yourself.
